6:01 am
distribution. next, cities and counties still have the right to ban medical marijuana businesses. individuals will have the right to grow it themselves. the deal also addresses some of the environmental damage done by outdoor crops that steal water and pollute forests are chemicals. all these measures will be up for a vote today when lawmakers adjourn for the year. also up for a vote the "end of life option" act otherwise known as the "right to die" or assisted suicide. it would allow doctors to prescribe a lethal dose of drugs for those who are terminally ill. it's modeled on other laws the patient must submit two verbal requests 15 days apart and then a written request to a doctor signed in front of two witnesses. there's been emotional debate for years but it took a new urgency when brittany maynard moved from california to oregon to kill herself after she was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 29. she captured the whole experience on video and urged lawmakers to pass legislation. after the assembly vote yesterday, maynard's husband took a moment to reflect. >> i'm keeping my promise to

britney and fulfilling that promise but it certainly is bittersweet. >> reporter: the bill now heads to governor brown's desk. he has not given his position on this issue other than some concerns about the legislative procedures. kiet do, kpix 5. today marks 14 years since the attack on world trade center a day known as 9/11. let's look at new york. this is near the site where the world trade center towers fell on this day back in 2001. you can see that family members are now paying tribute by reading the names of the dead. in the bay area, a ceremony to honor the flight 93 victims will be held this morning in union city. that plane went down in pennsylvania heading to san francisco. that will begin at 10 a.m. at the flight 93 memorial. it's located in the sugar mill landing park.
6:03 am
federal agents broke up a terror plot just before the announce anniversary. they say 20-year-old josh goldberg tried to recruit people online to bomb a memorial event in kansas city. that's according to court papers. goldberg allegedly told an undercover fbi informant to build a pressure cooker bomber and put as much sharp stuff in as possible. that bomb was never built. the fbi arrested him yesterday at his home in florida. 6:03. let's check the roads. >> "friday light" in some spots so there's good news to report as you -- hi, there we are. [ laughter ] >> all right. as you work your way in and out of the peninsula, but i want to get you updated on this trouble spot here. westbound 152 at dinosaur point they had one lane shut down for emergency repair work but that's been reopened. but just getting word of a major accident in that same area causing a big backup. westbound 152 at dinosaur point road so if you plan on heading out of town toward the 5 freeway by 152 there are delays
6:04 am
until they clear that accident over to the right shoulder. elsewhere, san jose north- and southbound not doing too bad along 101. northbound we are starting to see a few brake lights. speeds dipping around 30 miles per hour in some spots. past there, though, traffic clear 101 as you work your way along the peninsula towards sfo. no delays off the eastshore freeway. cooler today with big changes on the way. but it's going to be hot inland. out the door you can see kind of get a gauge of what to expect later today. triple digits today but not as high. santa rosa right now 49. san francisco 55. certainly cooler in areas near the coast. we have fog as you head out this morning so keep that in mind as well on the roads. headlines today sunshine for most hot again away from the coast. big changes though coming this weekend. temperatures will be cooling back down to average by next

6:07 am
stroke. then we see him shimmying up a piling, swinging really like a modern day tarzan. finally he walks to the edge of the old pier and then starts to multitask getting in a quick workout doing some pushups. >> we were able to more or less quarantine him in an area of the derelict peer by way of the rescue swimmers, police boats, fire department, jet ski joined in the operation. >> reporter: and they nabbed him. the man was taken into custody wrapped in a blanket and put on a stretcher. you may remember a couple of weeks ago a woman is accused of jumping in the bay to evade police. the man was set to be sent to jail after being checked out at the hospital. not sure of the charges but certainly evading police. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. a salinas city councilman is arrested on. jose castaneda

6:19 am
actually is. so a little bit of everything for us. i'm also going to throw this out there. a chance -- a slight chance of a stray sprinkle. not going to use the "r" word but a stray sprinkle by the end of the weekend thanks to the moisture as linda passes by. definitely not going to do anything to help with our drought. but it will give us something to talk about, right? sunny and hot again inland today. seabreeze and relief near the coast. and then more clouds and humid this weekend. those are basically your weather headlines what to expect over the next few days. sunrise today 6:48. sunset 7:24 p.m. let's talk about how warm it's going to be in your neck of the woods. still triple digits in morgan hill. cooler at the coast, 70 pacifica. brentwood triple digits. vallejo cooler 87. 97 in pleasant hill today. 80s and 70s around the bay for
